About EuroClonality

EuroClonality is a European scientifically independent foundation aiming to promote continuous innovation and standardization of laboratory diagnostics in hemato-oncology with a special emphasis on clonality testing and supporting quality control and education in laboratory diagnostics. EuroClonality developed and standardized novel multiplex PCR assays for detection of immunoglobulin (IG) and T-cell receptor (TR) gene rearrangements. These assays are now widely used for the diagnosis of lymphoproliferative disorders.

EuroClonality EQA Scheme

Together with the Biomedical Quality Assurance Research Unit of the KU Leuven, EuroClonality organizes an annual External Quality Assessment scheme. All laboratories working with the EuroClonality/BIOMED-2 multiplex PCR assays for detection of IG/TR gene rearrangements can join this EQA scheme to evaluate their performance.
